Tours that take you deeper
On each and every cruise we have a carefully curated programme of tours. As well as visiting the areas which are well-known in each destination, we also offer options, specially designed for guests who want to explore outside of the usual tourist trails. These signature tours allow you to get a better understanding of the local cultures, traditions and ways of life.
We offer a limited number of spaces on many of our tours to ensure we don’t overwhelm the destinations that we visit - and also to give our guests the very best and most enjoyable experience possible.
We will send you a Journey Guide which includes information on the tours available on your cruise, a few weeks before you travel. This information will also available in My Cruises.
